The Rams will have their top rusher on Sunday against the Titans. Running back Zac Stacy is expected to start for St. Louis in Week 9, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Stacy had been limited in practice with an ankle injury and is listed as questionable for the contest.

Stacy suffered the ankle injury in a Week 8 loss to the Rams. In that game, Stacy had a career-high 134 rushing yards on 26 carries. The rookie has started the last four games of the season for the Rams and has collected 348 rushing yards on 76 carries while adding 40 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions. Stacy jumped second-year rusher Daryl Richardson following Week 4.

The Rams currently have three running backs listed as questionable for Sunday. Along with Stacy, Richardson (foot) and Benny Cunningham (ankle) are both considered a 50-50 shot against the Titans.

Rams running backs have yet to score a rushing touchdown this season.
